Cinda loved taking care of older people and spent many years working in Adult Care. She was multi-talented and loved doing arts and crafts, she will be dearly missed at the many craft shows she took part in. Cinda was an avid Bingo player and supported all the local bingo games at the Canton and Ralston fire halls, always looking for that chance to yell "BINGO"!!!!!!
She was extremely family oriented and loved the annual family reunion. Going in early to help set up and staying to the end to clean up. Cinda took care of the reunion’s farmers market and served as auctioneer for their annual auction, always creating a few laughs. She would make it a point of visiting all that showed up and joking with them, this being true wherever she went.
Cinda and husband, Alan moved to Texas in October of 2018 to be near the grandchildren and had planned to attend the 2019 family reunion in Pennsylvania, but her failing health prevented that from happening. Something she sadly missed.
She went to sleep on Wednesday night and never woke up, taking her last breath at 2:17 a.m.--As quoted by Alan, “She was the love of my life and I miss her.
